Samsung to use either Sony or Samsung camera sensor for Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge

Unlike other Samsung devices, Samsung Galaxy S7 would be launched with two different versions. It seems that there would be two different kinds of camera sensors on the new flagship device. One of them would be Sony while other would be from Samsung.

The South Korean conglomerate would be releasing these smartphones depending upon your location. Samsung not only separates the camera sensors but also processors too. The device would be shipped with Exynos 8890 Soc which is made by Samsung or Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC would power the handsets.

The difference was noted by an XDA-forum user. Apparently the users received the Samsung Galaxy S7 that had BRITCELL sensor while he was expecting Sony Sensor.

“I just got my Samsung S7 Edge (G935F) and to my utmost surprise, I have got Samsung’s own BRITECELL(or whatever they call it) Camera Sensor instead of beloved Sony Sensor. That’s pretty strange,” a user wrote on the forum.

The users had even posted screenshots to corroborate his claims. Although, both device?s camera sensor is of 12.2MP rating but it is not clear which one offers a superior capturing technology, notes NDTV.

It is worth noting that Samsung yesterday announced the newest 12MP image sensors for smartphones and currently its 1.4?m-pixel-based image sensor with Dual Pixel technology are in the mass production. However, it is still not unknown whether the same camera sensors will be included on some Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge phones.

Samsung over the years has produced innovative components and its focusing more on manufacturing its own memory chips, modules camera sensors and processors. Thus, the company is expanding its presence in the electronics market.
